Miss Harlem Shake Contest



Do you have what it takes to be “Miss Harlem Shake”?!

Harlem Shake is looking for one lucky lady from Harlem who represents the special culture of the community and deserves to wear a crown!

Apply in store [download application HERE] or online [fill in and submit the online application HERE] to be the new face of Harlem Shake! The contest is open to current, female Harlem residents ages 18 and older who are proud of living in Harlem. All entries must be submitted by June 30th!

The winner will receive:

  • FORTUNE: $500 cash for the winner and $1,000 for their local non-profit of choice
  • FAME: framed headshot on Harlem Shake’s Wall of Fame
  • FEAST: free Harlem Shake burgers for a year!

Ten semi-finalists will be selected in July, followed by in-store customer voting to determine the top three finalists. So bring all your friends to Harlem Shake and tell them to vote! A judging panel of six Harlem celebs, including Brenda Braxton, Cynde Watson and Kevin McQueen will crown a winner at an awards ceremony party held at the restaurant on September 13th, hosted by pop culture expert and blogger Patrick Riley.

To chronicle the contest from start to finish, Harlem Shake has partnered with HarlemTrends.com, a local blog featuring uptown culture, entertainment and style, as well as Harlem’s online travel guide, ExperienceHarlem.com.
